I Hate Basketball

Wasn't it only last week when the Mavs choked and now the NBA season is starting up? The season is too freakin' long!!! But you had to giggle when the Miami Heat opened their season last night by hoisting their World Champion Banner to the rafters and then going out and getting drilled by 42 points. Good times.

I live in Chicago, and it's all we're talking about. The extended championship ceremony, and then they get trounced by the Bulls.

Amen to the too long season. I have a relative who (not too jokingly) remarks about professional hockey--"They play all season to find out what TWO teams WON'T be in the playoffs." The games last too long, the seasons last too long, and the teams are increasingly being populated by lowest common denominator characters. That's why I watch very little professional sports nowadays.

It wouldn't last long if it was played outside like football.

I'm more worried about the long baseball season rather than basketball.

I hate African handball too.

Jai Alai...that's a sport to hate. What's with the fucking claw they use? I agree about basketball being too long, and I played in High School and used to coach. The 4th quarter is the only part that matters, really. Except for in that Chicago/Miami game, because they were getting rocked the whole game. Football is the true American pasttime becuase it's fast paced, but not too fast paced, and satisfys our addiction to violence. (but not oil.)
